Abstract

Call for help early. Always have a backup plan. No more than 4 attempts at the initial intubation plan. Be familiar with the various types of laryngeal mask airways. No more than 2 attempts at the use of a laryngeal mask airway. Do not traumatize the airway - maintain oxygenation and postpone surgery. If necessary, do not delay cricothyroidotomy.
